July Update

Please keep us in your prayers as we travel today! The last 10 days or so have been crazy with our plans to travel to Texas up and down. We drove to Mexico City on July 2 to present all of our documents to begin Ceci's immigration process and get an immigration card with the idea of traveling to see friends and family in Texas. We ran into problems--because we do not have plans to actually move to Texas in the near future, the immigration officials at the US Embassy advised us to seek a simple "tourist visa." This should have been good news, except that the waiting process is 3 or 4 months for this type of visa. However, because we are US citizens, they moved Ceci's appointment up and yesterday she was issued a 10-year tourist visa. We can work out immigration things later.

Please pray for us as we travel the next few days towards the Lubbock area. We hope to spend about 3 weeks with family and supporters. Hopefully, we will see many of you and will get to introduce our new daughter to you.
